Right lucky, if the girder wot went though the porch window hadn't happened, you wouldn't have got out of bed before the chimney got you.

Thread: No Hosepipe Then?
19/07/2018 23:24:14

If my memory serves me right, the body I referred to was dropped into the lake but dropped on a ledge at half depth. This ledge had been created for construction traffic to enter and exit the lake area before flooding.

Then again I could be wrong and it could all be a figment of my imagination.

There was a popular film around when I was a lad 40s/50s, called 'The Last Days of Dolwyn' about the building of a new reservoir and the flooding of the said village.

Thirlmere, last time the water was low, they found a woman's body, who had been murdered and then dropped from a plane in a weighted sack by her husband.

Thread: What actually is Storage Mode ?
19/07/2018 00:06:31

Pointless worrying about storage levels

Say you buy a medium size Lipo pack for, say £25 and have 50 flights with it over the Summer.

That makes it 50p a flight, what's a cup of coffee cost?

Rather than worry about storage you might as well dump it and buy new next spring.

In my part of the North West they have reduced the water pressure so much I doubt if it would power a hosepipe to the end of the garden.

Love the cockpit views, enough detail to drive one nuts before even starting

In Dan Dare (see google for any too young) they had flying motorbikes.

Perhaps the pilot will just be used for day to day movements

Ripmax, Easy Street 2. Mid wing easy to launch, plenty of speed, lands lovely.

I tried it today, first time in years, OS 55 two stroke. Made no adjustments forgotten what to look for, then had six flights, no deadsticks

Thread: Friday the 13th!

My sister always used to laugh at my aversion to driving on Friday the 13th, until her son had a car crash on a Friday 13th.

Luckily not life threatening.

It says that the plane will be able to be operated remotely.

Therefore will it be subject to the Drone laws?

Thread: Bullet tape argh!

Gliders are no use for long grass, the leverage of the long wing will soon rip out the wing mounting.

Thread: Bullet tape argh!
15/07/2018 22:47:58

I bought a flying wing thing once, instructions said cover it in bullet tape. It's still in the corner waiting.

What is bullet tape.

I have a Steve Webb World Models 'Handyman'. This comes with an undercarriage, but I never fitted it.

Just launch underhand and off it goes.

Will do any maneuver and will land on any surface, including long grass. I get seven minutes from a 3s 1800 pack.

Been flying it for several years.

They also do a version called 'Handyking' which is the same but larger for 4 cells.

As I have grown older and glow models have become heavier, I have had to give up on the nose up test due to the fact that I can't manage it any more. laugh

Keep 'em coming Tom, you do stand a slim chance as I won't be entering this one smilecheekywink 2.

Well Ian, I was hoping if I slipped you a few bob you might work it for me. wink
